REDIFF's Oscar 2016 Predictions!

Last updated on: February 25, 2016 15:12 IST

The Oscars are only days away, and Rediff.com's Terrific Trio have already placed their bets.

Raja Sen, Sukanya Verma and Aseem Chhabra predict their winners in the major categories.

The predictions are listed in bold.

 

Raja's predictions

Always eager to complicate things, Raja has elaborately devised a way to differentiate nominees he believes are likely to win and nominees he believes deserve the prize. Here's his note explaining his system:

'As always,' says Raja, 'Who Will Win and Who Should Win are two different things, and so the name listed on top in each category is the likely winner while the name in bold is the ideal winner. Sometimes both of these are the same, and that's who I’ll be pulling for come Oscar night.'
